TAST 2013: The last 2 stitches

Here are the last two stitches in the Take a Stitch Tuesday challenge:

This week's stitch was the Triangular Feather Stitch.  I really liked what I could do with this stitch.

Last week's stitch was the Raised Herringbone Band.  I liked what I did until I used water to get rid of my water soluble lines.  I just don't seem to learn that unless I know for sure, I shouldn't use red thread.
Oh, Well...... :-(

TAST 2013 Inverted Feather Stitch and a catch up stitch

Here is the TAST stitch of the week:  Inverted Feather Stitch

And here is one of my many catch-up stitches I need to do from last year:

The Drizzle Stitch!  

I'm having problems with my blogging, so I need to get this posted and quit. I have too many other things to do right now!!!!!

TAST 2013, etc........

I am finally posting again.  I am trying to decide what projects are important to do this year.

I still want to participate in Take a Stitch Tuesday.  I still have quite a few stitches from the end of last year to do, but I have decided to slowly add those after doing the one for any given week.

I also considered doing more than one stitch on my 4" by 4" felt sampler but decided that I still like the idea of only using one stitch to create the picture.  So I will take my time catching up on the stitches I missed last year but that is OK.

Here is the first stitch of 2013:  The Knotted Feather Stitch

I loved doing this stitch--so many possibilities.  I really liked the way it looked with the linen thread that is the lighter green/yellow on the right hand side.   I also need to take seriously when thread dyers put "Not Colorfast" on their tags.  I guess they really mean it! :-)

Thanks for viewing.
